AMD Expands Data Center Solutions Capabilities with Acquisition of Pensando

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announ­ced that it has com­ple­ted its acqui­si­ti­on of Pen­san­do Sys­tems in a tran­sac­tion valued at appro­xi­mate­ly $1.9 bil­li­on. Pensando’s dis­tri­bu­t­ed ser­vices plat­form will expand AMD’s data cen­ter pro­duct port­fo­lio with a high-per­for­mance data pro­ces­sing unit (DPU) and soft­ware stack that are alrea­dy deploy­ed at sca­le across cloud and enter­pri­se cus­to­mers inclu­ding Gold­man Sachs, IBM Cloud, Micro­soft Azu­re and Ora­cle Cloud. The Pen­san­do team will join the AMD Data Cen­ter Solu­ti­ons Group, led by AMD Seni­or Vice Pre­si­dent and Gene­ral Mana­ger For­rest Norrod.

The data cen­ter remains one of the lar­gest growth oppor­tu­nities for AMD. The addi­ti­on of the Pen­san­do Sys­tems team with their hard­ware and soft­ware port­fo­lio will enab­les us to offer cloud, enter­pri­se and edge cus­to­mers a broa­der port­fo­lio of lea­ders­hip com­pu­te engi­nes that can be opti­mi­zed for their spe­ci­fic workloads,” said AMD Chair and CEO Dr. Lisa Su. “Pensando’s lea­ders­hip DPU com­ple­ments our data cen­ter pro­duct port­fo­lio, enab­ling AMD to offer solu­ti­ons that can signi­fi­cant­ly acce­le­ra­te data trans­fer speeds while pro­vi­ding addi­tio­nal levels of secu­ri­ty and ana­ly­tics that will play a lar­ger role in defi­ning the per­for­mance of next-genera­ti­on data centers.”

Pen­san­do will remain focu­sed on exe­cu­ting their pro­duct and tech­no­lo­gy road­maps, now with addi­tio­nal sca­le to acce­le­ra­te their busi­ness and address gro­wing mar­ket oppor­tu­nities across a broa­der num­ber of cus­to­mers. (…) Wei­ter­le­sen »
